Srinivasan (Srini) Venkatramanan is a research assistant professor at the Network Systems Science and Advanced Computing division. Prior to joining University of Virginia in 2018, Venkatramanan did his postdoctoral research at the Network Dynamics and Simulation Science Laboratory, Biocomplexity Institute of Virginia Tech (2015-2017), where he also worked as a Computational Health Data Scientist (2017-2018). He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Science in 2014 for his dissertation titled "Influence Dynamics on Social Networks". Venkatramanan’s research areas include stochastic modeling, diffusion dynamics, optimal control and network science. At the Biocomplexity Institute, he is responsible for developing, analyzing and optimizing computational models for complex systems arising in the domains of epidemiology and food security.

A research team from the University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute was recognized with the UVA Provost’s Office Award for Collaborative Excellence in Public Service. As representatives of the Biocomplexity Institute’s COVID-19 Response Team, Jiangzhuo Chen, Bryan Lewis, and Srini Venkatramanan were recognized for their service to the University, the Commonwealth of Virginia and federal authorities during the pandemic, and which continues today.


Regarding the current COVID case data in the U.S., Srini Venkatramanan, Research Assistant Professor at the Biocomplexity Institute, told Newsweek that from the latest set of updates, short-term forecasts are pointed downwards, "hinting that we may have peaked as far as the Delta wave is concerned, at the national scale."

The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), which originated in Wuhan, China, in late 2019, has received significant global attention due to the rapid speed and widespread reach of the outbreak. As of early March 2020, COVID-19 has exceeded 92,000 confirmed cases in 76 countries within a span of two months. In response to this global pandemic, researchers from the University of Virginia’s Biocomplexity Institute have developed a series of visualization and analytical web applications to provide a greater understanding of the pandemic’s scope, and to help officials, healthcare systems, and policy makers worldwide, control and ultimately stop the outbreak.
